the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi that left four americans dead. it is now been 17 days since that attack. sources say fbi agents sent to investigate the murders still have not been able to visit the actual scene of the crime due to security concerns. secretary of defense leon panetta yesterday said there was no doubt terrorists were responsible. >> as we determined the details of what took place there and how that attack took place that it became clear that there were terrorists who had planned that attack. and that's when i came to that conclusion as, again, as to who was involved, what specific groups were involved, i think the investigation that is on going. >> the romney campaign ramped up its criticism of the president's response to those attacks claiming the administration overstated the influence of an anti-islam youtube film in order to draw folk us away from security short falls. and the man behind the anti-islam film which sparked protests throughout the muslim world is under arrest this morning in california. 55-year-old is arrested. he is accused of violatin

for the state department and for her country. we've seen that heavy assault on our post in benghazi that took the lives of those brave men. we've seen rage and violence directed at american embassies over an awful internet video that we have nothing to do with. it is hard for the american people to make sense of that because it is senseless and it is totally unacceptable. the people of egypt, libya, yemen and tunisia did not trade the tyranny of the tape trader for the tyranny of a mob. reasonable people and responsible leaders in these countries need to do everything they can to restore security and hold accountable those behind these violent acts. and we will, under the president's leadership, keep taking steps to protect our personnel around the world. there will be more difficult days ahead, but it is important that we don't lose sight of the fundamental facts that america must keep leading the world. we owe it to those four men to continue the long, hard work of diplomacy. i am enormously proud of the men and women of the state department. i am proud of all those across our government, c
administration handled this? we have learned at cnn that the u.s. consulate in benghazi did not meet standard u.s. consulate security requirements. this is obviously a rather damning thing to be discovering at this point, considering what ended up happening there. jon huntsman told me he thinks consulates there who are not beefed up on security, shouldn't the administration be responding to that? >> i think the administration is responding to it. the state department goes to regular security procedures all over the world and updates them to take into account how the situation on the ground changes. i spent a lot of time in iraq and as we were transitioning from our military presence there to the state department presence there, we looked very closely at the security procedures at our con sue lates and embassies. so i expect in the aftermath of these incidents, there will be another review and steps will be taken to improve security where needed. >> let's talk about libya and the mixed messages. it still seems confusing to me. on the 16th of september, our ambassador called the attacks spontaneo
to be cautioused on what the president believes about benghazi. this is a president who said in the new york times, that the muslim call to prayer is one of the prettiest sounds he has heard at sunset. i guess you have your own opinion of what it sounds like. but it makes one wonder what the president believes about the mushim world. you talk about practicing religion, i wonder if ambassador stevens gets to survive because of a youtube video. it is all a red herring and this doesn't happen on 9/11. and it reminds me, steve and reminds me the president and administration and military trying to characterize the fort hood massacre not far from where i am here in dallas as workplace violence. that is minimizing extremism and secretary of state was a small band of people. if that is a small band, i don't want that on my doorstep. >> steve: no. michael goodwin said whose side are you on? he meets with the muslim brotherhood and yet when netanyahu is in town he doesn't meet with him. >> it was a big story that was lost in the aftermath of the killings at the embassy. when the president said i don't have

been allowed into the libyan city of benghazi. sources tell cnn that the crime scene on the consulate grounds has not been secured. sources also tell cnn that the u.s. intelligence community knew within 24 hours of the attack that it was an act of terrorism. yet the obama administration was cautious in saying so and has only started to acknowledge a terrorist link to the attack. this was in the last few days. on "360" last night, bob baer was asked specifically about that. >> i think it's political. i think the white house is reluctant to admit that libya has been lost or potentially lost. no administration wants to admit that. i think, frankly, we can't blame losing libya on this administration. you know, it was in the works for a long time. there wasn't much it could do. nonetheless we have an election coming up and no one wants to take blame for messing up the arab spring. >> the u.s. ambassador to libya, chris stevens was wrong those killed in that attacks. >>> mitt romney and president obama will both be campaigning in virginia today. they were both in ohio yesterday. you see a t
